NIROSTA STEEL "Some Say" UNRELEASED ARTHUR RUSSELL MUTANT DISCO REISSUE 7"
Edition of 500 Hand-stamped and numbered Full-colour insert with liner notes by Bob Blank.
Wilde Calm Records is proud to present 'Some Say,' a recently discovered song from the archive of Arthur Russell. The track was produced and mixed by Arthur in 1985 for a solo project of Steven Hall's that was originally intended for release on Rough Trade Records. Legendary disco producer Bob Blank recorded and engineered the project at his Connecticut-based studio. 'Some Say' features Arthur's classic cello basslines, cracking boom bap drums and Steven's floating vocals and synth pads. In true Arthur fashion, the song abrubtly stutters, slinks and lurches halfway through for Steven to complete his Buddhist pop mantra.
The B-side features an extended rework of 'Some Say' by Pocketknife using Arthur's BOSS Dr. Rhythm DR-55 drum machine.
